Tyre advice

Post by Mikey500 on Wed Mar 22, 2017 3:13 pm

When I bought the bike I asked them to put a moouse in which they did.. Now I Need a new rear tyre, its a 110, apparently should be a 120 or 140 for my exc 500 , but the moouse in there now is too small for them so do I put a 110 back on or pay 100 for a new moouse... What you think? Would it make that much difference? Also thinking about the comp 6 140 tyre, any good?

Comp 6 front & Mitas EF07 Single green band rear is a perfect combo, but what some like other may not, as you have put a new mousse in I'd say stick a 120 back on & finish it off, or sell it on as I'm sure someone will have it.

That would be good in a 140 tyre on a wet event

Thanks for the advice, what type of condition do you think my mouuse will be in, it was fitted in June last year but I didn't ride till after I done my test mid August, done about 30 hours ish, would it be good enough to sell on?

I put a 120 mousse in a 140 tyre to do a Barmouth trip, went in new on the Friday, Monday it was in the bin, your 1st post made it sound like it was new new, I bet if you put that in a 140 now it'll crumble, keep it for an emergency spare & get a new correct 1, besides, a 120 mousse in a 140 will be great for grip in an event but no good for trail riding, or it certainly won't last very long.

Comp 6 front is an awesome tyre, backs are good but i only use em in the winter & events cos they don't last long & not the cheapest.

Just buy another 110 or a 120 my mousse is over 2 years old and done 250 hrs +   it's well fooked now 
I don't know why anyone would buy a 120 mousse tbh buy a 140 and it will serve u well

I've had Michelin mousses in mine since before the welsh last year and they're still ok! WTF did you do to wreck a mousse in a weekend Neil? Laughing

Confused at the last bit do you mean a 140 moouse or tyre or both 140?
